THE STORY:

Casey has been charged with unfair traffic offenses. This is costing him thousands of dollars in fees for his defence in order to protect himself from terrible long term effects of this experience. Casey, who generously lends his love and support to us, needs our help.

The guy:

This is Casey. He loves trucks, quads, singing karaoke but most of all, spending time with family and friends. He is the guy that calls you his best friend after meeting you once. He is the guy that always remembers to ask how your mom or husband or wife or child or dog is doing. He asks these important questions and is always genuinely interested in hearing the answer. Many people in Fort McMurray know Casey as a kind hearted soul who is never too busy to have a chat. Right now Casey needs our community’s help.

The story:

Recently Casey has had unfair charges filed against him for traffic offences of which he is completely innocent. Casey has a medical condition and requires a doctor’s note to renew his driver’s licence. Casey submitted his doctor’s letter but Alberta Registries neglected to process the paper work. As a result Casey’s driver’s licence had been suspended, unbeknownst to him.

Casey was driving and was stopped by police and it wasn’t until that moment that he discovered his licence was not valid. The police officer immediately confiscated and impounded Casey’s truck and gave him a mandatory court date for driving with a suspended licence. Casey has done nothing wrong. Casey has his copy of the doctor’s letter signed and stamped by Registries as proof he submitted it. The day after Casey was ticketed, he and his mom Florence returned to Registries with the documentation and were told that there was nothing they could do and that Casey would have to go to court.

Despite his innocence, he may be fined up to $5000, have his licence suspended for 6 months and, worst of all, have this charge on his driver’s record for 3 years which would drastically affect his insurance rates and employment opportunities. As Casey is mentally challenged, he already has a difficult time finding employment and often has to rely on the generosity of the community and collecting bottles to make ends meet.

To clear Casey of these charges and ensure that he is found not guilty, his family has hired a lawyer. His court date is August 18, 2016. The funds collected here will go to paying the impounding fee of Casey’s truck ($1800) and the lawyer fees (estimated at $5000). As Casey often works part time at a minimum wage job he cannot afford these fees.

If you are able to help Casey, a guy who already faces more challenges than many of us and is a ray of sunshine in our community, please consider donating. Any of us could be a victim of a bureaucratic error.

Thank you: from Casey, and from the community who loves him.
